Yes, your father has to pay tax on such income.
Agriculture income from the land situated in India is tax-free. However, Section 10(1) of the Income Tax Act states that agriculture income from a land situated outside India shall not exempt from tax, hence it is taxable.
So, the income of 150000 from an agriculture land is taxable.
